and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, rick snyder in michigan, tom corbett in pennsylvania, rick scott in florida. let's not forget bob mcdonnell in virginia. and of course, scott walker in washington. what do they all -- sorry, wisconsin. what do they all have in common? they pursued an agenda to limit the rights of workers in their states so they could balance the budget, but also break up the unions. their agenda, last night, was rejected by the people in their state. you know what they all got in common? all of their states went blue. i guess we could say, well, thank you, governors, for defining the republican party for us. it made voting a lot easier for a lot of americans, like these voters, the radical agenda of the right was defeated by thes

will be the united states of america. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not niaive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit d

. america has rehired the president. he won last night. handling the electoral college, and coming back in january for a second term. so it really was kind of a stunning night here. he really -- and most of the battleground if not all, won, fought back romneyen all of the cases. saw a very gracious concession speech from governor romney. clearly disappointed. went to a raucous scene in chicago with the president. still very much a divided country. look at the electoral college it wasn't close. in the popular vote the was really close. i think the points, come out of this, this was not necessarily a mandate. you know, the government has stayed the same. democrats going to run the senate. republicans have the house. and the president goes back to the white house. back where we started after all the money. >> $6 billion. >> real test of the president's theory that the election will break the fever in washington now the american people have sent him back and maybe signal to congress to get out of obstructionist mode and say look we have to work together now we are liked into this thing for

(cheers). together we must lead america to a better place. now, we're only two days away from a fresh start, two days away from the new beginning. my conviction that better days are ahead are not based on promises and rhetoric, but on solid plan, and proven results and an unshakeable faith in the american spirit. is anyone worried that the last four years are the best we can do? does anyone who fears that the measured american dream is fading away, wonder whether better jobs and paychecks are a thing of the past, i have a clear and unequivocal message, with the right leadership, america is ready to come roaring back. we're americans, we can do anything! (cheers) >> the only thing that stands between us and some of the best years we've known is lack of leadership and that's why we have elections. this tuesday is a moment to look into the future and imagine what we can do, to put the past four years behind us and start filling a future. you saw the differences between the president and i, when we were standing side by si sid
